For years, I couldn't for the life of me find a roll-up lawn chair to suit my stupid back with its stupid bulging disks. As you must have gathered by now, we like to sit in parks, so I considered a comfy womfy chair to be of some importance. If memory serves, I once purchased three different chairs to help alleviate my condition. Despite the fact that one of them even had an insertable, blow-up pillow, none was suitable for long sits. Not only do we like to sit at parks, but sitting for many many hours at Celtfest was really too uncomfortable.
Then, I saw one called Strongback at the popular, local, casual clothing store – Marks. But I didn't buy it at first because it was twice as expensive as my other chairs which had been even more expensive than lesser lawn chairs. Eventually, I capitulated and have been quite happy that I did. I can sit in it comfortably for hours, even for a whole weekend concert.
Unfortunately, it recently broke. By this, I mean that one fastening part fell out. While it could possibly still have worked, this old bod didn't need to have the chair collapse with him in the chair. Which would have dumped said bod unceremoniously out of the chair and onto the ground.
These chairs are not exactly sold on every street corner, but I did find one online – at Amazon, of course. I hesitated for it was twice the price of the original chair which as I have noted had been at least twice the price of regular lawn chairs. After some dithering, I put it into the cart and purchased it.
It came yesterday. I don't know why Amazon will not put the parcels inside the porch, but we are usually around and the doorbell system usually lets us know, through Alexa, when someone approaches the door. I was alerted and went downstairs.
